E.P.I Technique (intratissue percutaneous electrolysis)
Intratissue Percutaneous Electrolysis is a physiotherapy technique in order to re-establish and enhance the biological healing mechanisms in different conditions of soft tissue.
The E.P.I Technique has become an essential and effective tool in areas of knowledge such as Sports Physiotherapy, Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy, Physiotherapy in Orthopedics and Traumatology and Physiotherapy in Obstetrics and Urogynaecology.
The E.P.I Technique consists of the ultrasound-guided application of a specifically designed and controlled continuous current that causes an electrochemical reaction only in the degenerated area of the treated tissue. The primary objective is to produce a non-thermal electrolytic ablation that induces a highly controlled inflammatory response. The EPI Technique activates the cell mechanisms involved in phagocytosis and the repair/regeneration of affected tissue, thus obtaining the best possible results in the treatment of tendon, muscle, ligament and scar injuries.
